In a recent internal move, AMVETS promoted Bunmi Moses to head all programs at the national level for the organization.
Moses officially joined AMVETS in March 2019 as Senior Development Associate. In her first year on the job, her work directly led to dramatic expansion of the organization’s reach nationwide through new partnerships and collaborations.
Moses is a U.S. Air Force veteran (11th Wing Security Forces Squadron) and the first female non-citizen to be hand-selected to serve in the USAF Presidential Honor Guard. She has received many awards and accolades for her honorable service, including a nomination as one of the 12 Outstanding Airmen of the Air Force and the USO’s National Capital Region, C. Haskell Small Award for Volunteerism.
After her service, Moses went on to work as a development officer for United Way of Miami Dade, FL, increasing donations in her division by 47% in her first year. She has a proven track record as a leader in business development and relationship management and prides herself on exceeding revenue goals.
In 2009, while visiting the Brooklyn Veterans Affairs, Moses discovered significant gaps in services offered to veterans, especially female veterans. For years after, she participated in volunteer events for veterans within the community, finding one of the best opportunities to advocate on behalf of all veterans: AMVETS.
Moses has been on the fundraising committee of the USAF Honor Guard Alumni Board and currently is a member of the United Way Capital Area Women United group, as well as the Young Philanthropist group. Bunmi is also serving as an Emeritus board member of Miami’s Diaspora Vibe Art Gallery for the past 25 years.
Moses was born in Lagos, Nigeria and is the oldest of seven children.
